      Also Don mentioned that people had been thinking about Thor, and as long as we keep thinking about Thor and the Asgardians, they would remain "anchored" into this reality.
      So until people really needed or wanted Thor to return, (the creation "CLOR" probably helped with that call) Thor awoke and left the Void of non-existance.

    See, that's the thing I have an issue with. So far, it hasn't been touched upon at all in the comics. You'd think that would be an important plot point later on down the line, especially with the way JMS began it.

    It just reeks of this whole notion along the lines of 'If you say you don't believe in faeries, they die'. I know it's not exactly like it, but that's how it sounds to me.

    Though maybe, especially with the way you put it Vartha, maybe it's not divine worship or anything that matters. Maybe it's just being ensconced in the public's eyes due to his tenure in the Avengers and people remember him as a hero. That heroism sticks with people and, given the current climate of the MU, maybe some ordinary citizens want a hero like him to come back.

    There's a million different ways to interpret it, and sadly, I fear we won't ever get the definitive answer.

I'm just wondering, and maybe I'm just thinking aloud, that we don't necessarily need an answer. No offense, but we could see it very diferent ways, and it still serves the purpose of the story. It reminds me of certain parts of Star Trek Fandom who obsess about smaller details that really have no meaning (why do certain Klingons have ridges and some don't?)

I mean, I choose to see it as the power of Myth made flesh, that when the Gods are needed to save us, they will arrive, in one form or another. Whether that's by odin power, rune power, or just collecive belief of mankind, the mechanics of it don't really matter.

I don't know, just my two cents.
